Akron vs Buffalo
Kwadarrius Smith and Nate Stewart each have 12 catches while Jonah Morris has 182 receiving yards this season. As a team, Akron is averaging 326.8 yards of total offense and 27.5 points per game this season.
The Akron Zips travel to upstate New York to take on the Buffalo Bulls in a game that could potentially take Akron out of the MAC East race. The Bulls are looking to move to 3-0 in conference play, while the Zips are currently 0-1.
Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports The Zips got walloped last time out, in large part because of turnovers. For Akron to win, they need to hold on to the ball, while also forcing Buffalo to turn it over.
The Bulls were motoring right along until they got destroyed by a tough Army squad. They then righted the ship by beating Central Michigan, however I am not convinced all is well. This game at home against a solid Akron squad is a much bigger test. If the Bulls protect the football and manage to punch it in against the Akron defense, they really shouldn’t have a hard time stopping the Akron offense. However,
The Buffalo Bulls will look to add another win to their strong 5-1 start to the season after a 34-24 win over Central Michigan in their last outing. Tyree Jackson has thrown for 1,331 yards, 17 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 57.6% passing this season while Kevin Marks has 466 rushing yards with 7 touchdowns this season.
Akron is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the under is 28-11 in their last 39 games following a loss. Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games while the over is 6-0-1 in their last 7 games following a win. The home team is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings between these two teams and Akron is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 trips to Buffalo.
Akron has had success in conference ATS and on the road, and the underdog has fared well in this matchup, covering in 8 of the last 11 meetings between these two. However, Akron hasn’t had a lot of luck in Buffalo, and the Bulls are the team to beat in
the MAC this season with Jackson leading the charge under center for the Bulls. The home team has dominated this matchup over the last few years so I’ll bank on that trend continuing and side with Buffalo to get the job done in this one.
